Our New Place: AFTER

The Elite Events Design Studio & Party Planning Boutique is OPEN FOR BUSINESS!

A huge thanks to Mary Wyar of Mary Wyar Photography who captured images of our studio space the day before our big reveal and  and Bethany Leisure from Wellspring Photography who was kind enough to capture images of our Ribbon cutting and our VIP Preview Party!

Our entrance :)

Many have asked, “What type of things will you be selling in your boutique?”

Party Planning Boutique

Tired of gifting ordinary flower arrangements or looking at the same collection of basic vases? In addition to our custom floral event design, we offer unique, creative & statement cash and carry arrangements that are a far cry from the standard’s at your ordinary mom & pop flower shop. We also offer group tutorial classes, seasonal home decorating and Pinterest project workshops. Check our Blog to sign up for the latest flower classes!

Sharon Johnson is Elite Events amazing floral designer. She has been working in floral for 27 years and is one of the best in the business. She made all the beautiful arrangements and wreaths that are in our boutique. How gorgeous are these succulent wreaths for sale!? We couldn’t be more ecstatic to have her as part of our design team!

Lavender, Succulents, and Zinnia’s are just some of the goodies you can find in our boutique available and ready for your yard!

The AMAZING birch window display Sharon and I dreamed up, is catching the eye of many Toledo-ins

This is my FAVORITE PHOTO, how amazing are the test tubes and large spheres floating above the table!

This birch arbor is available for rent for wedding ceremonies. It makes a beautiful backdrop and often we drape it with fabric.  For our store window display we wanted to do something a little more unexpected so Sharon came up with the idea of incorporating a box spring with wire coils into the table display.  I (Nikki) LOVED this idea.  I love the fact that to the eye it provides a bit of dimension and really has people thinking, ” is that a box spring?” Sure is! Another big thanks to Mary Wyar, who was the former owner of this beautiful box spring!

I had envisioned bright spring colors with a pop of glitz and sophistication, this table linen was the perfect pair! For some reason this winter just seemed really drag out, so bright colors were a must!

At Elite Events we create truly custom events right down to the stationery.

We opted for a menu card that also served as the place card!

Thank you’s are becoming more and more popular, we opted to design a Thank you that would be displayed the the beautiful Chavarri Chairs (that we also rent). Sugar Shack Specialty Sweets in Swanton provided this gorgeous cake to match our unique stationery.

Need a bridal show gift? The Boutique sells bridal hangers! The words can be customized and can also make great bridesmaid gifts, baby shower gifts you name it!

All our events that have been featured in magazines hang on our wall!

One of my favorite views!

We love the view from our office

Need custom made banners? We sell them at our Boutique! The majority of our products are hand made by local artisans!

Our client meeting area :)  I have to say, I LOVE how the fireplace turned out, as well as the damask wallpaper!

Need glassware for a candy bar at your party? Elite Events has all different shapes and sizes that are available to rent to fit your party needs, complete with custom tags and signage.

Elite Events even has party supplies! We carry paper straws in a variety of colors and patterns that you can come in and pick up. We offer custom made banners, engraved silverware, twine, and more!

The fun safari themed party area, to help clients visualize how all of those details come together and how fun any party can be! We love this one because of its fun colors, textures and gender natural theme!

The custom stationery ties in perfectly with the party table

Our over sized orange clothes pin works perfectly as a table number or in this case a way to display the the custom designed menu.  They are also great for holding napkins at an outdoor event, and photos for indoor events.

The stationery display!

The studio even has a “Kids Corner” that is stocked with the cutest headbands, bows, toe blooms, necklaces, and owl pillows made from local Toledo crafters like Oh Sew Betty!

We LOVE these custom made Bridal shoe clips and coordinating hair clips! looking for something unique? Let us know!

Custom wall art that would fit in perfectly for that new home of the newlyweds or in the nursery of that precious baby. Great gifts for showers! Also hand made by one of our Fabulous Elite Gals!

Stop in and see the jewelry we have in stock! We can even order them in other colors as well.  Great statement piece for bridesmaids or a night out on the town! Lots of Fun colors in for Summer! Oh Sew Betty made the amazing chevron bags, that would be great for just about anything!

How could we not celebrate this new venture without a PARTY! We decided to throw a VIP Preview Party inviting only an exclusive list of people to sneak a peek before we opened out doors to the public.  These people have been supportive of us through our 5 years of business and we truly wanted to thank them by showing them a great time and celebrating this new venture with them! THANK YOU to everyone who came out and shared in this day with us!

A great party starts with a GREAT invitation, and I have by dying to do acrylic invitations for FOREVER, so I decided why not showcase them for our big party!

 The Elite Events Preview Party had a tent provided by Meredith Party Rentals outside behind the building. The tent was draped in gorgeous linens and lights thanks to Chris Majors. Guests had a blast taking photo’s at the Photobooth provided by Considering Lillies and loved dancing to the music from Decorative Sound. The food catered by The Blarney was delicious-guests filled up on shrimp, veggies and hummus, chicken and grilled veggie kabobs, and caprises salad kabobs.

All the guests enjoyed the s’mores and popcorn bar. Premier Pour came and created the most delicious signature “E” drink in our Elite Events green!
